Thank you for the days : a boy's own adventure in radio and beyond by Mark Radcliffe( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approaching 50, Mark Radcliffe decided to write about his life, most importantly, his time in music. But crucially, he only wanted to write about the most interesting days and not the dull ones in between. With predictable good taste, Mark takes his title from the Kinks' song and has written an entertaining, funny book worthy of such a pedigree. Mark's family life is covered by 'The Day My Mother Hit Me With a Golf Club', his school life by 'The Day I Ruined a Perfectly Good Suit' and 'The Day I Got My First Guitar'; through his epiphany of the power of music in 'The Day I Met the Band Who Changed My Life' and his star struck meeting with childhood hero, David Bowie. Many other stars are covered too, for example in 'The Day I Went to Kate Bush's House for Cheese Flan', and 'The Day Mick Jagger Was Taller Than Me'. He's very funny when recounting his days working at the BBC in '80s and '90s (how, when bored, he and colleagues invented a fictional department), winning Stars in Their Eyes as Shane MacGowan and so on. Yet, among the laughter are more sober days, such as the one when he learned John Peel had died. A cracking read and a potted history of both one man's life and his love affair with music, THANK YOU FOR THE DAYS is a uniquely entertaining memoir that will appeal not just to music fans but to connoisseurs of British popular culture
Crossroads by Mark Radcliffe( )

3 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Standing at the crossroads - the Mississippi crossroads of Robert Johnson and the devil's infamous meeting - Mark Radcliffe found himself facing his own personal crunch point. Aged sixty, he had just mourned the death of his father, only to be handed a diagnosis of mouth and throat cancer. This momentous time in his life, and being at the most famous junction in music history, led Radcliffe to think about the pivotal tracks in music and how the musicians who wrote and performed them - from Woodie Guthrie to Gloria Gaynor, Kurt Cobain to Bob Marley - had reached the crossroads that led to such epoch-changing music. In this warm, intimate account of music and its power to transform our lives, Radcliffe takes a personal journey through these touchstone tracks, looking at the story behind the records and his own experiences as he goes in search of these moments

Reelin' in the years : the soundtrack of a Northern life by Mark Radcliffe( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Mark Radcliffe was born in the late 1950s, Britain was trying to find its own version of the dangerously sexy Elvis ... we gave the world Cliff Richard but by the time Mark was old enough to recognise pop songs on the radio, the UK was exploding into the world's most exciting place to be for a young music fan. In this, his eagerly awaited new book, Mark Radcliffe takes a record from each year of his life, using the song as a starting point from which to reach out and pull together a wonderfully entertaining catalogue of memories and asides about British culture. And, as one would expect from this unique and popular broadcaster, the tunes he lists are not the usual suspects. From The Kinks' 'See My Friends', through Slade's 'Coz I Luv You' to Kraftwerk's 'Europe Endless' and Joy Division's 'Atmosphere', Mark's selections bring forth a diverse collision of styles from eras uniquely defined by their musical genres and fashions. Bringing his choices right up to the present day, we see the inclusion of artists such as Richard Hawley, Elbow and Fleet Foxes. Mark's hugely entertaining and affectionate trawl through his favourite music of the past 50 years is guaranteed to surprise and delight his many fans."--Publisher's description

The Mark Radcliffe show( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Radio One chief Matthew Bannister popped into "A Lite Bite" in Altrincham for his favorite gherkin roll, little did he expect to find the two northern chancers who would bring so much sophistication to his beloved station. For there in the corner, playing a DLT Give Us A Break trivia game, stood Mark Radcliffe and his mate, known not particularly affectionately as Lard. Soon millions would be tuning in to hear the witty banter and roughhouse sketches of the men once described as "that fat git and the other one." The comic interludes here set hearts a-flutter, had the critics raving and drove leading academics to acclaim their breakthrough in conjugating the word "bollocks." This collection of treasured moments is our tribute to the mirth of Mark and Lard

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Rez.: Bewacht von Dementoren sitzen in dem Gefängnis Askaban die Zauberer, die Untaten begangen haben. So auch der Spion Lord Voldemorts. Der bricht aus, um Harry, des schwarzen Lords schlimmsten Gegner, zu vernichten. Entsprechend verläuft das Schuljahr in Hogwarts. Harry steht unter strenger Bewachung, denn nur er kann verhindern, dass Voldemort wieder an die Macht kommt. Trotz der Vorsichtsmaßnahmen zieht sich das Netz enger um Harry, er leidet unter Alpträumen, in denen er den Tod seiner Eltern immer wieder erlebt. Als es schließlich zur großen Konfrontation der Gegner kommt, stellt sich heraus, der Spion ist die Ratte Krätze, die sich von einem Menschen in ein Tier und zurück verwandeln kann. Wieder entkommt sie! Wie in den beiden Vorgängern (zuletzt BA 7/99): hervorragende, fantasievolle Schilderung einer ganz eigenen Welt mit eigenen Gesetzen. (In England tragen die Harry-Potter-Bände zwei verschiedene Einbände - für Jugendliche und für Erwachsene!) - Dringend zur Fortsetzung empfohlen!

Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), de 13 años, es-tá pasando a regañadientes otro verano más con los Dursley, sus deprimentes parientes, ¿portándose bien¿ mientras se aburre y sin practicar ningún tipo de magia. Es decir, hasta que la mandona hermana del tío Vernon, la tía Marge (Pam Ferris), viene de visita. Tía Marge ha sido especialmente horrible con Harry y esta vez le presiona tanto que él ¿accidentalmente¿ hace que se hinche como un monstruoso globo y se vaya a la deriva. Temiendo el castigo de sus tíos (y la repercusiones que tendrá en Hogwarts y en el Ministerio de Magia, que prohíben terminantemente a los es-tudiantes hacer hechizos en el mundo no mágico), Harry huye en medio de la noche. Rápidamente es recogido por el ¿Autobús Noc-támbulo¿, un fantástico vehículo violeta de tres pisos que le lleva al pub del Caldero Chorreante. Al llegar, Harry es recibido por el Mi-nistro de Magia, Cornelius Fudge (Robert Hardy), que inexplicable-mente no le castiga por su indebida hechicería
